“How can I help fight Climate Change?” The 3-Step Answer.

"How can I, just one person, make a difference?" We all ask ourselves this question from time to time. The obvious answer you rarely hear is, "Stop polluting!"  Stop adding carbon to the atmosphere. Live a carbon-neutral life. When everything you buy, everywhere you go, and almost everything you do adds to carbon pollution, how can you stop adding carbon to the atmosphere?  "I have to travel…to work…to live."  Of course, we all do.  While the wheels of corporate activity turn, new technologies are being developed, philanthropists are...

The Double Tsunami of Climate Change

Why be concerned about Climate Change? 2015 is the year that Climate Change broke into the front lines of social and political issues. With the Pope's encyclical this year it even became an endorsed moral imperative.  However, hiding just behind the first wave of environmental crisis that is Climate Change, upon which we are now focused, is a second wave still ignored (@2030now, @climatechange, @speciesextinction, @UNFCCC).  Just like the climate change issue, scientists in their fields of expertise have been warning about this second threat...

Pope Francis’s Encyclical for the Environment

For a century and more, naturalists have been warning of our need to take better care of our environment. For decades climate scientists have been warning us about the coming effects and dangers of man-made global warming. For years both NASA and the PENTAGON have been warning us about the arrival of climate change and it's risks.  Now, even the pope -leader of the world's largest religious following, has proclaimed in the highest-profile way possible that it is time for an "ecological conversion" of the faithful. So what more can it take to...

A-Team For Wildlife’s Manifesto

What we believe A-Team For Wildlife focuses on what we believe is the most important activity to be doing at this point in history, in order to save most of the natural world and human civilization.

We serve youth saving endangered species.  Conservationists have largely been neglecting youth.  As half of the world's population are children, we...

Protecting the First World Wide Web

Post 4 in the series by Ken Jones "Branding Concerns for the Earth"   What do you call it? The state of natural affairs today, and our vision for our future? Long before the advent of the World Wide Web of the internet, there was a different internet, a different World Wide Web. It is known as the Web of Life. The Web of Life is huge, diverse, extremely interdependent, and important. It is important to us because we depend upon it for our very lives. We call what we take from the Web of Life, "Natural Resources". These natural resources...

World Population Day

Post 2 of the series:   Letter to the Editor, World Population Day, observed annually on July 11,  was created by the United Nations in recognition of the need to raise awareness about the problems created by growing human populations.  Not long ago, on July 11, 1987, the world's population reached Five Billion people.

Changing of the Guard for Wildlife

Post 1 of the series: The famous environmentalists listed above, among others, are aging or deceased. They have been the public educators and influencers - the conservationists who have taught a generation to care. 70% of today’s conservationists will be gone in 20 years due to retirement and death. Who is going to take their place? Despite their best efforts, they are leaving the natural world worse off than before. The next new generation may be the last one that can conserve nature enough to avoid the tipping points that loom for climate...
